The former EastEnders star will be featuring in the next American Pie film as a British exchange student.
She told the Sunday Mirror: "I sent my audition tape over to the film company and I didn’t even know it was for American Pie, I just knew it was for a teen film in the US and they were looking for a British girl.
"Then my agent called me and said, 'You’re going in four days time'. Oh my God! So I went home, packed and I suddenly found myself in Vancouver for seven weeks, filming a Hollywood movie."
Lyton also dismissed rumours that she was linked with Jack Tweed.
She said: "The rumours about me and Jack Tweed were rubbish. We have mutual friends and were just photographed chatting at the Wireless festival a while ago."
